It’s not uncommon for physical altercations to break out at local watering holes regardless of the region in question. However, it’s fairly rare for a bar brawl to involve a known Mixed Martial Artist let alone one of the best featherweights in the world.
Former UFC title-contender Chad Mendes, unfortunately, found himself mixed up in such a scenario earlier this year when a fight broke out at a bar in California where he allegedly struck a patron before evading authorities. Though Mendes faced up to six months behind bars due to the battery charge attached to the situation, the 27-year old grappler can now put the matter behind him.
According to a press release from his manager, the charge was reduced to a public disturbance, allowing Mendes to pay a fine and move on with his life.
